Development cost: $100 million ($111 million with 2017-inflation)

Impressively bumped-up visuals, more multiplayer carnage and a well-built video editor; this is the ultimate version of 2008’s premier sandbox game. If you’ve got the specs to run it. – Computer and Video Games
A genuinely ground-breaking blockbuster in videogame history. There were moments playing GTA IV that I thought back to my initial experiences with games, and realised exactly how far we’ve come. There’s never been anything quite like GTA IV in the world. That there makes me genuinely happy to be a gamer. – Eurogamer
It’s basically a remake of GTA 3 with a bigger budget, a new cast of characters and solid storytelling. And it’s still incredibly captivating. – Absolute Games

4. Max Payne 3 (2012)

Development cost: $105 million ($110 million with 2017-inflation)

Max Payne 3 is a solid game made for the PC, with incredible visuals and sound to go along with that. This is a no brainer for any action shooter fan out there. –Impulsegamer
Despite the new setting Max Payne 3 captures the cynical dark atmosphere of the series perfectly. New gameplay elements like the cover-system are implemented very good, but the lack of innovation makes the action a bit tedious towards the end. Nonetheless Rockstar delivers a good game and even more important: it deserves the name Max Payne. – PC Games
Fans of Max Payne in PC can be happy. Rockstar has done its homework and this is not just a port. All the virtues of the console version are here, but its graphics have been greatly improved and with a powerful machines we can enjoy an spectacle. If you like action games and your PC is up-to-date, this is a great acquisition. – Vandal

3. Grand Theft Auto 5 (2013)

Development cost: $137 million ($142 million with 2017-inflation)

Sure, the Rockstar Social Club is an annoying hoop to jump through, and hardware fragmentation poses problems for some. But for those with the hardware to run it, GTA V serves as a testament to the PC platform’s superiority, and a reminder that good things come to those that wait. – AusGamers
GTA V PC is the ultimate version of one of the greatest games in history and the best open-world game that you will play until the advent of GTA VI or RDR 2. – Ragequit.gr
Rockstar told us the PC-version would be the ultimate version and they were right. GTA 5 on PC looks incredible and it works almost perfectly. Sadly you might still encounter some bugs and glitches in GTA Online that you already saw on the consoles. – XGN

2. Destiny (2014)

Development cost: $140 million ($143 million with 2017-inflation)

Even with its stumbles, the initial release of Destiny is a colossal achievement in interactive design, integrating a number of differing genre elements into a smart and unified whole. Bungie’s latest futuristic opus is one of the first true event games of this new generation, and while it still has room to grow, it’s worth your attention right out of the gate. – Game Informer
Destiny, isn’t just set in space, it an allegory of space. It is beautiful and fascinating, but oh so cold and immense, and the past engulfs everything. – Guardian

1. Star Wars: The Old Republic (2011)

Development cost: $200 million ($213 with 2017-inflation)

When it all works, it sings. It IS Star Wars and you are living in it. But when it doesn’t, it frustrates, perhaps because the best moments are so good that you wonder why it all can’t be that good. – RPG Fan
They have succeeded far beyond my admittedly high expectations. As a KOTOR fan, I finally have my long-awaited sequel(s). As an MMO fan, I am hooked. As a Star Wars fan, I am enthralled. – G4 TV
Huge, colossal and epic. Maybe The Old Republic isn’t the most innovative MMORPG out there, but BioWare has constructed a brilliantly assembled videogame. A must-have for genre fans and also for Star Wars enthusiasts. – 3DJuegos
